Miracle Vitamin Helps Cancer Patients Live Longer
By now you probably know that I have one key criterion I use to determine if a drug or treatment is effective:
Does it help you live longer?
Some of the most popular mainstream methods get tossed out the window based on this one simple question (taking a statin a day to prevent heart disease and getting regular mammograms are a few that come to mind).
But there’s a miracle vitamin that SHUTS DOWN diabetes and BOOSTS brain health…
And a new study shows that it can help cancer patients live longer, too.
A recent study presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s annual meeting revealed just how important vitamin D is for cancer patients.
Researchers analyzed multiple studies including nearly 79,000 people. They specifically looked at the impact of supplementing with vitamin D for at least three years (vs. not supplementing with vitamin D) to see if it had any impact on cancer mortality.
The results clearly show that there was a statistically significant difference in the mortality rate of those taking vitamin D vs. those not taking it.
Let me put that a different way: Taking vitamin D could help cancer patients live longer.
Now, there was a lot this study didn’t look into… like how much vitamin D to take, what blood levels of vitamin D were necessary for this effect, or how it worked.
I have a few things to say about that.
First of all, supplementing with vitamin D isn’t nearly as important as making sure you have adequate blood levels.
The current blood level recommended by the National Academy of Medicine as the optimal vitamin D blood level is 20 ng/ml.
That number is based on previous research showing that 20 ng/mL was how much vitamin D you needed for strong bones… but other studies find that that’s not nearly enough to have an impact on cancer.
Based on those studies, I always recommend a vitamin D blood level of at least 60 ng/ml.
My second key point is that I never recommend vitamin D supplementation as a first resort.
The best way to get your D is to spend more time in the sun or to eat more vitamin-D-rich foods, like salmon, sardines, beef liver, oysters, and eggs.
If following those guidelines still isn’t getting your blood levels of vitamin D up to snuff, only then do I recommend supplementation.
